Let me start for apologizing for my bad grammar. English is not my first language.
So here is what I want to do.
I need to build my own Linux distribution for a class in college. It's a contracted work for more points and I have limited resources.
I cannot afford to buy a 'dummy' machine so I thought I could use Vmware Fusion on a Mac. I can build just fine. But somehow my work goes away if I restart the Vmware machine. I'm assuming because it's booting from the ISO file each time.
My question is how can I, or even if it's possible, to tell Vmware to use an external hard drive for this project. Kinda how it can boot to the bootcamp partition. I want it to be able to boot to an external hard drive.
